Chelsea desperate to flog Batshuayi, Bakayoko and Emerson in £160m clear-out to fund Havertz and Chilwell transfers
CHELSEA are looking to offload £160million-worth of big-name flops to help fund Frank Lampard’s first spending spree soccer under tip.The Blues have agreed a £54million fee for Leipzig striker Timo Werner and have already sealed a £37million deal for Ajax winger Hakim Ziyech.Now Lampard has the green light to move for Leverkusen attacking star Kai Havertz and Leicester full-back Ben Chilwell.Those deals would push the club’s summer outlay close to £250million but the cost could be partially offset by a major Stamford Bridge clear-out.Tiemoue Bakayoko, Emerson Palmieri, Davide Zappacosta, Danny Drinkwater, Michy Batshuayi and Victor Moses have all been made aware that they do not feature in Lampard’s future plans.But the club will have to accept a major hit on all six of the surplus stars just to get them off the wage bill.Top of Lampard’s hit-list is French international midfielder Bakayoko, who cost Chelsea £40million when they signed him from Monaco three years ago but has spent the last two seasons out on loan.And they face an even bigger loss on midfielder Danny Drinkwater, who joined on the same day as Zappacosta in a £35million move from Leicester.The former England international has not played for the club for two years and has barely featured during loan spells at Burnley and Aston Villa this season.Drinkwater, 30, still has two years left on his Chelsea contract but knows he has no future at Stamford Bridge and hopes to be allowed to leave for a nominal fee.Belgian international Batshuayi also appears to be on his way out after being left out of last week’s behind closed doors friendly against Reading.The £33million striker is now behind Werner, Tammy Abraham and Olivier Giroud in the Chelsea queue and with only one year left on his contract will be offered up for sale this summer.Moses, who is currently on loan at Inter Milan, is also up for grabs. The Italians have an option to sign the 29-year-old wing-back for £10million but are not prepared to pay that during the coronavirus recession soccer tip to win.They could complete a deal for half of that price and Chelsea are unlikely to stand in the way of his departure.
